For this new release of TMS WEB Core v1.9, we let us inspire by the extra-ordinary nature of the Italian place Sentina along the coast of the Adriatic sea. It is along this coast that in 1955 the famous Mille Miglia race was happening and that inspires the entire cycle of releases of TMS WEB Core. After the wonderful place Sirolo we chose for v1.8, we believe Sentina is equally beautiful.
TMS WEB Core v1.9 Miletus highlights
As many TMS WEB Core users know meanwhile, it also brings cross platform development based on web technology via the Miletus technology. That means that you can create from TMS WEB Core a desktop cross platform application that will have a GUI built with HTML5/CSS3 and can be deployed as single EXE executable on Windows, macOS and Linux. In the area of Miletus, the two highlights for TMS WEB Core v1.9 are that from now on we support macOS ARM based CPUs as well as Raspberry Pi OS desktop apps.
So, from your favorite Delphi IDE, you can create a Miletus executable and do XCOPY deployment to your Apple device (with M1 CPU or Intel CPU) as well as to your Raspberry Pi device. The interesting part for Raspberry Pi is that there are also new components to let you take advantage of the hardware extensions connected to your Raspberry Pi via i²c, SPI, UART or GPIO.
See for yourself in this video from colleague & evangelist Dr. Holger Flick:
